Climate Science and Impacts


    Peter Pfleiderer

    Peter’s research focuses on climate change extreme events, such as tropical cyclones. Currently, he is working on mapping the impacts of climate change in emissions pathways that would ‘overshoot’ the 1.5°C temperature limit before returning below it by 2100, as part of the PROVIDE project. Peter has also developed approaches and open source tools to share and communicate climate projections. Since 2020, he has published seasonal forecasts for the Atlantic hurricane season.

    Peter completed his master degree in physics at the Freie Universität Berlin. He completed his PhD at the at Humboldt University, where he studied different aspects of weather extremes in a warming climate with a focus on methodological challenges.
